These are new holiday embellishments from Webster's Pages at Art 'n Soul. I especially love the dove.

While we're thinking 'holiday', i.e., Christmas, let's not forget it's still fall and the beautiful colors and images of fall are very appropriate for the Thanksgiving holiday this month, too.

all of these stamps feature leaves that will make
beautiful fall foliage for a card, book, or other creative project

From the Memory Box blog . . . I was so excited to see this simple card design because I purchased the advent calendar die set. And I've always loved that little polar bear! You may click on the title "Joy!" to go to the Memory Box blog site.


"Hello, Stampers!
It's my day to post on the Memory Box Design Team blog, Outside the Box, and I've been playing with our dies again!

One of the things I like best about the Advent Calendar dies are their versatility. You have the ornaments with the numbers removed from a solid background, the "cut-out" numbers, the solid ornaments and the outlined ornaments. I used the solid dies to cut out ornaments from patterned paper - the bear images are the perfect size for this. I could have made one "25" ornament, but I wanted two ornaments from the contrasting paper and thought I'd go with the "2" and the "5."
I wanted this card to be as flat as possible for mailing, so I didn't use any dimensional tape under the ornaments. This is one of the rare times my plan for a card actually resulted in something that looked the way I envisioned it - lol! Anyway, it looks as nice as I imagined so I'm very happy.
Card featuring Memory Box Advent Calendar & Classic Upper Alphabet dies.
